What Are the Most Common Bike Accident Injuries?

You should familiarize yourself with the most common injuries associated with bike accidents.

Unlike driving in a car, riding a bike leaves you completely exposed to everyone else on the road. This includes motorists and truck drivers, all of whom could collide with you on your bike, ejecting you from your seat and potentially causing serious injuries.

Fortunately, with the proper safety measures, such as wearing a protective helmet and reflective clothing to make your presence known, you can minimize the damage you would endure after a crash. However, you should always be aware of your surroundings and know what to expect in the event of a bike accident.
